X-Men Movie: Gambit News Update!!!

Here is what the man (Channing Tatum) playing Gambit in the stand alone X-men movie had to say about the progress on the project:

"Creatively, we’re starting to chug forward. Obviously there’s nothing written. There are only conversations and dreams right now, really. The machine of the Marvel world is so ginormous that it’s like literally climbing a mountain, getting one of these movies made, and all of the pieces that go along with it. I’ve been pretty vocal about wanting to be the part of Gambit for a very long time. It’s a weird, pinching-myself moment that we’re even having the conversation.  We’ve talked about it being a standalone first, and actually trying to change the ‘hero, superhero movie’ just a little. Because Gambit is not really your typical hero. He’s a thief. He walks on the gray. I’m hoping we try and can change it a little bit, and then feather into the other ones."
